Uncompetitive Starts

Given the recent bad starts by the Jays, I got to thinking about what is a reverse of the Quality Start? I’d call it Uncompetitive Starts.

Quality Start - 6IP and 3 or fewer runs
Uncompetitive Start - I’d say fewer then 5 innings, 5 or more runs allowed (IE: giving your team a very poor chance to win). By making it a double requirement you don’t punish guys who go deep but allow a lot of runs, or guys who are openers thus won’t get 5 IP under an circumstances. Not making a divider between earned and unearned runs as in the end runs are all that matter.
